I offer group and 1:1 Hypnobirthing Courses in the Bolton Area or I can travel to your home if desired. I also offer Paediatric First Aid training sessions for parents and carers of infants and children.
I am a hypnobirthing Mum! I found hypnobirthing and undertook a course after a traumatic first birth experience. My second birth was calm, I was confident and it was an enjoyable experience, everything I had hoped for. The experience I had has inspired me to want to help other parents to be to be fully informed of their options, choices and to equip them with the skills used to hypnobirth.
I am a qualified KG Hypnobirthing Teacher the training I have undertaken is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives .
My professional background is that of Paediatric Nursing with over 10 years experience in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services, with a particular interest in peri-natal mental health, infant mental health and parent-child attachment.
I am a fully qualified First Aid Trainer Assessor. Training delivered is verified by the FAA First Aid Awards Ltd and the training provider are regulated by Ofqual.
KG Hypnobirthing is logical, simple, practical and very effective: a complete antenatal education. It makes a difference to your experience of giving birth and gives you the tools to give your baby the best possible start in life. You will learn about the procedures that are routine in hospital and your alternatives, so you and your partner can make informed decisions with confidence that they are the best for you and your baby.
Hypnobirthing empowers mother and father/birth partner and has the most profound effect on the baby which will last a lifetime. Between 20 and 35 weeks pregnant is the ideal time to undertake the hypnobirthing course.
My name is Louise and I am a first time mum to Eliza (2). The hypnobirthing method puts the control of what can be an extremely daunting and uncertain experience whichever pregnancy it is for you safely back in your hands. I have been lucky enough to know Fran for many years and have great confidence in her knowledge and experience, not to mention her natural caring, passionate and friendly approach to everything she does. I would highly recommend Fran as the best placed person to get you through the best experience that childbirth truly can be. Enjoy every minute of this special time.
As a mum pregnant with my second, after my 1st experience when giving birth to my first I really wanted to try and learn as much as I can as I was frightened to experience what I did with my first. I knew the hospitals did hypno birthing classes but me personally when you go to the hospital for different appointments and always waiting around I kind of did not want to do my course there. so I was over the moon when I found calm natal and Fran who does the classes. The locatio...n and the room is perfect and me and my partner went for the one to one with Fran. Fran is a mum herself and has experienced her first birth with out hypnobirthing and experienced her second birth using hypnobirthing. She really explained everything really well and I felt so ralexed with her and felt I could express my feelings and ask for advice. I loved the cake,biscuits and the refreshments and the comfortable incline chairs. I really would recommend hypnobirthing to every single parents out there as I really had no idea with my first. When I did the course I learnt how my body works when it comes to giving birth and I was amauzed and shocked too, that I never knew this information. I did not even know what happens when you go over your due date, and to understand what options they do ie the sweep and what impact it has on the body was really useful. I am really enjoying the book and listening to the CD and really am positive with all the things I've learnt and no longer have the fear I had with my first. Everything we did on the course was useful and I would not change a thing about the course. I am really excited to meet my little girl and use everything I have learnt and be able to come back and share my experience when it comes to the Big day. Thank you so much Fran for everything.
